Here is the acoustic guitar part for the Black Crowes' "She Talks To Angels".  
Chris Robinson's guitar is tuned to an Open E chord.  I sort of stumbled 
onto this fact when I was I was trying to learn another tune that was in 
Open E.  Most of this I figured out by ear, some I picked up from the
Crowes' appearance in MTV Unplugged.   I'm not claiming it's 100%
accurate, and I haven't included any strict timing indicators.  Use this 
tab as a guide, and listen to the recording to get a feel for the timing
and chord changes.

To tune to Open E, raise the 5th (A) string to B  (full tone)
                   raise the 4th (D) string to E  (full tone)
                   raise the 3rd (G) string to G# (half tone)
The characters ^ and v below the tab indicate suggested strumming patterns
for chord sections (^ = strum up, towards the ceiling, v = strum down)

1.  She never mentions the word addiction
    In certain company
    Yes, she'll tell you she's an orphan
    After you meet her family

    Pulls those shades down tight
    Yeah she gives a smile when the pain comes
    The pain gonna make everything alright, alright
3.  She keeps a lock of hair in her pocket
    She wears a cross around her neck
    Yes, the hair is from the little boy
    And the cross is someone she has not met, not yet
